On Wednesday 18th May 2016, Jolly’s Manufacturing officially launched their new line of products under the theme “Sustainable Manufacturing for the Future”.

The launch introduced the general public to new products including Bay Off Insect Repellant Cream and Spray, Babylis Male and Female Adult Deodorant, Babylis Cream, MB Ointment and Bathing Soaps.

The featured speaker, Supervisor of Jolly’s Manufacturing Ms. LouAnn Jno Baptiste said at the launching that “these products came about mainly because we want to create products which contain few to no chemicals, products that are all natural and most importantly safe for our bodies. For example, there is ongoing research on the link between aluminum compounds found in antiperspirants and deodorant and breast cancer. As a result, the formulation of our deodorant does not contain aluminum compounds.”

Dr. Orrin Jolly, Assistant Manager and Pharmacist at Jolly’s Pharmacy also spoke at the function, highlighting the humble beginnings of Jolly’s Manufacturing, as well its transformation into a modern manufacturing company.

Saverin Mackenzie, from the Dominica Manufacturers Association, said that he “is happy that Jolly’s Pharmacy is taking manufacturing to another level” and encourages local manufacturers to continue persevering. His wish is that local manufacturers will one day be able to compete with regional and international manufacturers.

Jolly’s Manufacturing is a subsidiary company of Jolly’s Pharmacy with a presence on both the local and regional markets including Guadeloupe and Martinique. It is the manufacturer of locally made products such as Sulphur Ointment, Turpentine Oil and Black Disinfectant also known as Jeyes.

    Back to natural. Its time we start owning what’s ours…To many time we choose foreign chemical products over our natural then we go showing off our expensive product line, following western trends while we do extreme harm to our body. Buy Local people…We have every thing we need.

    I sure will support Jolly and their effort to have less chemicals in their products. I try my best not to use deodorants with aluminum. Jolly, we would like soaps and lotions with no parable too. This would be a gold mine, as we in the science field seek to use natural and eat things that are natural. Go Jolly

    Don’t put Johnson and Johnson Talcum baby powder on the market. Talc is linked Ovarian Cancer that many women die of every year.

    Jolly’s pharmacy congrats on this new line. but let me make a comment, your medication prices are getting very high over the past few years. It’s so high that I find myself going to Portsmouth where I have found a very nice pharmacy in the main street because what I need is cheaper and the customer service is
    so goods. I have not at once left the pharmacy where the staff and pharmacy always give the customers so many jokes and fun which includes me. It is a pleasure to go to this pharmacy it’s like a outing for me at my age to see all the customers so happy.
